Traders of Borough Market one year on from the terror attack

borough Market-3449A year on from the terror attack at London Bridge, ES magazine revisited the famous Borough Market to see how  the traders have bounced back. Photographing the various characters it was clear to see the sense of unity and camaraderie amongst all who work at the capital’s oldest market. Former offshore fisherman Paul Day, 55, whose stall, Sussex Fish describes the first week back after the incident:

‘I’ve never seen anything like it — the reaction was amazing,’ he says, tears welling up. ‘The amount of hugging! There’s a young girl who walks through here in the mornings on her way to school called Matilda and she came through with a heart she’d made for me and her dad said, “She’s been really worried about you.” I just broke down in tears.’

Moonroast Coffee

Moonroast High res-18

The Uk is seeing a renaissance of small-scale producers setting up shop in their own homes, selling to consumers who increasingly want to buy local. One such example is Francis Bradshaw, who in 2014 started Moonroast, roasting coffee in a barn in rural Hampshire. This career move comes as no surprise as the Bradshaws have a century long tradition in the coffee and tea trade. In the 1800’s Richard Goodwin Bradshaw joined London’s principal tea brokers ‘Wilson Smithetts’ where he became an expert in trading and blending tea from Ceylon. Expertise in coffee has continued through genenerations of Bradshaws and Francis’ father, Haydon, is one of Britain’s top coffee tasters.

At his boutique artisan roastery Francis slow-roasts a range of premium coffees in small batches, by hand, using beans ethically sourced. Moonroast has won a host of ‘Great Taste Awards’ and has his coffees stocked in Selfridges Foodhall and a host of cafes, gastro pubs, deli’s, farm shops and restaurants.

Graham was originally a maths teacher living in Chelsea but following the sale of his flat in Gunter Road, to his neighbour, John Lydon, he moved south of the river and set up the shop.
